Full-featured Benchtop Dispense System - Catalina
Full-featured and compact benchtop dispensing robot offering accurate and repeatable dispense results!
A benchtop system does not mean "no features". The Catalina benchtop system is a full-featured platform with these standard features: automatic vision, laser surface sensing, and nozzle alignment.
Our semi-automatic dispensing robot provides you with accurate and repeatable dispense results. Applications using conductive adhesives, solder pastes, glues, gasketing, and more benefit from the powerful system features:
- Easy to learn, computer-based software with Windows operating system.
- Automatic alignment and positioning with high resolution camera.
- Create dispense paths using camera teach or on-screen graphic editing.
- Import DXF files for complex path programming.
- I/O ports provide the flexibility to add advanced features/equipment.
Laser traces the dispense path and measures surface variation, then adapts height of the dispense tip to maintain a consistent gap.
Vision system locates alignment points to account for product rotation.
Automatic XYZ Nozzle Calibration
Locates dispense tip in X, Y, Z for accurate fluid placement.
Graphic Edit & DXF Support
User-friendly graphic editing to create a dispense path. 2D AutoCAD DXF files are supported.
Matrix Dot Dispensing
Easily duplicate a common pattern in a matrix.
Multiple types of fill area and dispense patterns. Easy to teach.
Dispense | Measure | Vision
The combination of dispensing, measuring, and vision functions can reduce operating time. Distance can be measured between dots, circles, circle diameter, circle center, and stripe width.
Non-contact surface sensing.
Fluid Pressure Control (FPC) - Real time process control for pump. Constantly monitors and adjusts fluid pressure entering the pump to maintain optimal pump operation condition.
Heated Work Table - For heating substrates up to 90° C (194° F).
Fluid Level Detect - Notifies operator when fluid level attains set point.
Contact Surface Sensor - Alternative to laser surface sensor. A contact probe may be used to physically touch a product in order to locate the surface.
